Reviewer: picfixer - - January 10, 2011
Subject: Gorilla Suit Western
Bizarre Gene Autry western that really stars Smiley Burnette, who gets more screen time than Autry. Regardless of its title, this oater is set in South Africa, but of course it wasn't shot there. A senseless plot that even by the standards of its time (1937) is markedly racist. However, there are some good swing tunes performed by young, black singers. Even the guy in a gorilla suit can't save this one. Two stars as a curiosity. The intact print is watchable.
